FinCap Friday: Viral or Vicious?

With new social apps popping up, it's clear that social media isn't going anywhere. So, it makes sense why so many people have taken to social media to promote their brand or message, including financial influencers! The personal finance community on social media is quite large and while there are many who believe that this type of content is life-changing in a positive way, others think there are many negative aspects to financial advice on social media that cannot be overlooked. What are some of these reasons? Find out all about them in this week's episode of FinCap Friday!
